“We did get a call saying they do plan on keeping both stores open and taking care of the employees that are currently there,” Mayor Hal Patton said Tuesday. “They realize there is a strong customer base that has enjoyed Shop-N-Save for years. We’re certainly happy that the employees and the customer base will continue to be able to go to that store.”
